Chocolate Banana Cream Pie.
Want to know why?
Well.. pies aren’t perfect. At least mine aren’t. I always see the images of the perfect pies and I think “Wow. That person has their life figured out.”
I imagine them in the kitchen cooking. In a calm environment. Maybe some music playing. Taking their time to make sure the crust is perfect. That the filling is just so. That it turns out absolutely gorgeous.
That is probably the complete opposite of my time in the kitchen. Usually rushed during nap time or done during the calm moments that the toddlers are playing nicely and not attacking each other or climbing on the table causing me the momentarily panic as I run jumping over random toys that are strewn all over the floor to get them.
Which is of course how I made this pie.
On a day that little Bubba Man didn’t take a nap. And demanded that I do things one handed so I could hold him up and he could watch.
So don’t judge the slightly messy pie I am sharing with you today.
Even though I don’t have the time or patience to create perfection with my pies the recipe is heavenly. And the end result is tasty. No matter how it looks.
We start with a chocolate pie crust. A few slight modifications to my typical pie crust recipe, that I used with this All American Strawberry Cobbler, to make it loaded with chocolate flavor.
Then there’s the chocolate cream layer. Decadent and rich.
A layer of fresh banana slices.
A layer of homemade pudding. So much easier than you might be thinking.
Top it all with a thick layer of whipped cream. Some more banana. And of course some chopped up chocolate.
So even if you don’t consider yourself a pie expert.
Something I myself am far from..
You will rock this recipe. And the reward will be digging into this Chocolate Banana Cream Pie when it’s all over.
And I leave you with the chocolate thief..
